Default Acura TL drivers seat

I have an `03 3.2 TL-S. Drivers seat makes a snapping/cracking noise when
you shift your weight around in a certain position. Noise drives me crazy,
but of course never happens when at the dealership. Anybody heard of this
before? Any suggestions? Sounds almost like plastic cracking or snapping.
Felt around inside of seatback cant find anything. Advice would be
appreciated.

Take off the seat back cover and spray WD-40 and/or apply felt pads to the
metal sleeves where the springs clip into place.

My noise was coming from the seatbelt assembly. I sprayed some dry teflon
lube into the buckle release and the cracking noise disappeared, for now
:-)

Many Thanks, but how do I get the cover off the back? I can get my hands in
there but I dont want to break it off by pulling it wrong. Are there clips?

Thanks again.

I had this problem with my 02 TL-S.

The dealer fixed it, free of charge.
It turned out to be the seat back pads shocks that needed oil.
I think he took off the back cover and sprayed some oil lubification.

There are two clips at the bottom of the seat. It can be tricky to
get those out. At the top there are plastic extensions that hold the
panel in place. Once you have the clips out at the bottom, simply
pull straight down on the seat back panel. Check this website for
instructions:
